Will wants to get Nicky involved in boxing and starts talking like an announcer (particularly Howard Cosell) to Nicky as if Nicky is Muhammad Ali. Will Smith would later star as the boxer in Ali (2001). Also, later on in the episode, Will learns that a girl, Helena, is Nicky's boxing instructor. He laughs and mentions how there are Muhammad Alis and Mike Tysons but no female boxers. Muhammad Ali's daughter, Laila Ali, became one of the first professional female boxers in 1999. See more »

Boxing Helena was my favourite episode
27 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fresh Prince of Bel air was by far the most exciting and comical comedy I have ever seen. Actually it is still shown in the Uk, however, my favourite episode was Boxing Helena. The reason why Boxing Helena is such a favourite of mine is as a result of the actress herself, Galyn Gorg. I think she is a great actress and brings elegance and charm to the screen. For those who may be wondering who is this actress, it's the girl who stared in the M.A.N.T.I.S with Carl Lumbly,also Judgement Night with Cuba gooding Jr and Point Break with Keanu Reeves and Patrick swayze. Nevertheless, Boxing Helena episode proved she is an all rounded actress who complements the character and role she is given.
